Senator John McCain (R) Arizona made the most repulsive speech on Friday, February, 17, 2017 in Germany, that I have ever heard by a member of Congress. He said the following:
While making his case, McCain — who like Trump is a Republican — mentioned Ewald-Heinrich von Kleist. Von Kleist was part of the group that plotted to assassinate Adolf Hitler in 1944.

McCain then tried to dismantle Trump's foreign policy (America First), his recent immigration order that critics called a Muslim ban, and some of the alleged untruths that have emerged from Trump's White House.
"They would be alarmed by an increasing turn away from universal values and toward old ties of blood, and race, and sectarianism. They would be alarmed by the hardening resentment we see toward immigrants, and refugees, and minority groups, especially Muslims," McCain said.
"They would be alarmed by the growing inability, and even unwillingness, to separate truth from lies. They would be alarmed that more and more of our fellow citizens seem to be flirting with authoritarianism and romanticizing it as our moral"
If he said something like this on American soil, it would be bad enough. Saying it on foreign soil makes it worse. But, comparing President Trump to Adolph Hitler in front of world leaders in Germany and then wondering aloud what the world would be like if some brave German had been heroic enough to assassinate Hitler, goes beyond the pale. Can I count on you to publicly denounce Senator McCain's actions? I will be making a list of those who refuse to denounce Senator McCains public as well.
